CP Automation has announced its new range of small-footprint Revcon harmonic filters and regen units. To ensure equipment longevity and efficient energy consumption across oil and gas, water treatment and data centre sectors, the extended product offering includes the Revcon RLD regen unit, Revcon Harmonic Filter RHF-5Pand Revcon RHF-Active.
With a focus on efficiency and power quality, these compact products offer the same reliable performance as their predecessors, but in a smaller size. The RLD regen unit comes in the new size of 0/220 covering the range from 2-20kW. Similarly, the Revcon harmonic filter RHF-5P and RHF-8P range now encompasses three new sizes the 2A, 4A and 6A covering 1.1kW to 630kW.
Due to the silicon carbide (SiC) based technology, the RHF-Active enters the market as the most compact active harmonic filter of its kind, capable of reducing harmonic current distortion of non-linear loads to any required total harmonic distortion (THDi) level. This SiC technology allows for a switching frequency of 60kHz, and therefore prevents any acoustic or electric noise such as high order harmonics.This makes it possible to reach vigorous standards such as IEEE 519-2014: Recommended practice and requirements for harmonic control in electric power systems.
“Harmonic distortion of the mains voltage has extremely detrimental effects on equipment lifespan,” explained John Mitchell, Global Business Development Manager at CP Automation. “If harmonics go untreated, they can cause electrical systems to overheat, resulting in costly equipment damage. The new additions to our harmonic protection range enable facilities to mitigate harmonics, even when space is at a premium.
“Equally, don’t let the new super-small RLD regen unit fool you. While extremely compact, its high efficiency of 99% guarantees extremely low energy losses across electrical systems. Over time, this small product could result in huge cost and energy savings for businesses, without taking up valuable space.”
These products can be used in various applications including construction, oil and gas, water treatment, marine, data centres and general industry. They can be retrofitted into existing applications or added to new lines, to protect against harmful harmonics and reduce energy losses.
